On September 24th, American University hosted the 14th Annual Graduate Symposium in the History of Art. Four MA students from the American University Art History program presented the following papers:
–Erica Bogese, “Constructing Citizenship: Jacques Louis David’s Lavoisier Portrait”
–Sarah Hines, “Captivity, Resistance, and Female Empowerment: Narratives of Women’s Strength in the Work of Harriet Hosmer”
–Leah Haines, “The Temporalities of Work and Rest: Camille Pissaro’s Peasant Woman”
–Becca Blader, “Balance and Mirrors in Joseph Jachna’s Landscape Photography”
Each of these papers was drawn from the students’ ongoing or completed thesis projects. Congratulations to all those who presented, and to George Washington’s three speakers for their excellent contributions to the symposium.
